PERSON: What are you reading?
The Content Trap, Bharat Anand.
What was the last song you listened to on purpose?
“Running up that Hill,” Kate Bush
Worst thing you can say to a bartender
“So what are you doing after this?”
What’s your guilty pleasure drink
Mezcal Last Word
People need to quit drinking . . .
I never want to make another . . .

Unconventional bar tool you can’t live without
A ‘team builder’. If you’re in the thick of it during a crazy shift, you say “I want a team builder!” and all the bartenders do a shot together.
Happiness. Doing something that makes you happy. Being creative is what got me into doing more mixology and creating different drinks from all these things. I would ask my GM “can I play?” and he’d be like keep it under fifty bucks.
